The official slogan for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024: Games Wide Open
The President of Paris 2024 Tony Estanguet explains the slogan “Games wide open”, which was released on Monday 25 July 2022, as part of the 2 years to go to Paris 2024 Olympic games celebrations.
“Games Wide Open. This is the shared slogan for both the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, unveiled by Paris 2024 on the occasion of the 2 years to go anniversary.
Above all, since the beginning of this adventure, it is the ambition that drives us and inspires each of our actions.
It is an invitation to the world to come and experience new emotions together. Our Games are the commitments of new experiences and big thrills. New disciplines, outdoor competitions in the heart of Paris, a unique Opening Ceremony on the Seine, the Marathon for All so that everyone can run this iconic Olympic event like the athletes…
Let’s open the emotions of sport
It’s a power. The power to open our hearts and minds, to stop seeing differences as obstacles. Between the non-disabled athletes and Para athletes: there is only one French team. Between the Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games: there is only one emblem and one slogan. Between men and women: our Olympic Games will be those of perfect parity.
The power to write the greatest collective story of a whole generation, through everyone’s contribution, by giving room for everyone: all the territories, the expertise, and all those who wish to join us.
Let’s open the Games to all energies
It is also a dream, a dream shared by everyone who is building these Games. A Games, to reinforce the place of sport in our lives; to support the transformation of the territories, particularly in Seine-Saint-Denis.
Ground-breaking Games, which imagine the world of tomorrow, testing, inventing, creating, and shaping solutions that will genuinely serve society. And which place youth at the heart of their action.
Let’s open our eyes to the current challenges
It is a collective ambition, to open the Games, to showcase to the world the best of France especially its boldness, its creativity and innovative spirit that makes up our country’s identity.
To deliver inspiring Games that will help take the Olympic and Paralympic Movement into a new era. Bold and creative Games that dare to take a step outside the box, to challenge the current models, our ways of seeing things, our paradigms; to give us the opportunity to come together, to be proud together, to experience together.
Quite simply a Games wide open.”
